Secretary Fortune, of the Commercial Club, went over to Haughvill yesterday to learn how tho people in that suburb feel toward annexation. He says ho was treat ed courteously, but found the field unfavor able for agitation. Some of the leading citizens would favor such a movement, but others equally influential would be against it. The latter even dis couraged tho idea of talking about tho matter. The officials are unwilling to go far enough to call a conference. West In dianapolis, they think, could join the city and be greatly benefitted, but aa as for Haughville, the question is not to be thought of for a moment. However, every body with whom the secretary talked re garded annexation as a certainty within the next ten years, but the Hanghville cit zens want to enjoy their low tax levy a few years more.

Lcd-rcoia suts at Win. L. ElderYs, FASTMAN PBEPAB1SG F0B A "VICTORY Seventh District Republicans Come Into the Field with Their Candidate. Assurances from Several Quarters That the Party Is Getting Into Excellent Fighting Form Political Meetings and Notes. TOE ANDERSON CONVENTION. It Nominates J. Jr W. ISlllingiley for Con gress by Acclamation. There was a marked degree of interest taken in the work of the Seventh con gressional district convention of tho Re publicans at Anderson yesterday. Nearly a hundred went from this city and county, and proportionately large delegations were present from Hancock, Shelby and Madison counties. There were no pledges and promises to hold the delegates to any candi date, although quite a number of men were talked of in connection with the nomina tion to be made. In a district that has heretofore bcon Dem ocratic, it was realized that this year's can didate for Congress must be a hard worker, a stanch Republican and a popular man, and to this end the convention worked, Doxej's Music Hall was well filled at 2 o'clock in the afternoon when the conven tion was called to order. On motion of Otto Gresham, R. A. Black, of Hancock, was chosen permanent chairman. Four secretaries from the several coun ties composing tho . district were chosen, as follows: Charlos Wiltse, Marion; W. S. Montgomery, Hancock; J. H. Lewis, Madison; Thomas Ellis, Shelby. Mr. Black, in accepting the chairmanship, thanked tho convention and spoke briefly of tho ap proaching campaign. "It is necessary," said ne, "to look at two things in consider ing a political party its past history and its latest official declarations. Viewing tho Democratic party from these etand-points there is absolutely nothing to hope for. If any man can point with pride to its history he is hopelessly a Democrat. Applause. 1 To what worse condition could a man bo consigned! Apnlause.l What hope is there for its future! Look at tho recent Democratic convention at Indianapolis; its opealng prayer was sacrilege and its plat form was an insult to common sense and propriety. Applause. J There was but one thing consistent about its work. After de nouncing tho judiciary tho convention put Green Smith on their ticket. ILaugh ter.l I do not mean to leave the impression that if the Democratic party was in power the country would go to ruin, but that tho best interests of our government depend upon its continuous defeat. The Republican party is a party of Serformances. The election which put In lana'a most famous son in the presidential chair Prolonged applause. 1 showed that. And the Republican majoritvin tho House, with the aid of the good Lord and Tom Reed (laughter) have redeemed tho pledges, regardless of the schemes of Bynum and his associates. Tho soldiers of this country must hold tho Democratic party responsi ble for the veto of tho only measure that could have been passed by a Congress, one House of which was Democratic. And what has the Republican party done for themT Everything; for it has stood by them and their widows and children. But I am taking your time. Wo have met here to-day to relieve this poor, grass-burned district of the misrepresentation we have had, Applause and I hope your deliber ations may securo the desired end." On motion of Dr. Van Vorhis.of this city, the convention unanimously indorsed the work of tho State convention and the plat form of the party. The call for nomina tions was then made, and, on behalf of his del egation, Dr. Van Vorhis presented tho name of J. J. W. Billingsley, which was received with great applause. Tho name of Charles L. Henry, of MadisonVvas also greeted with cheers, but he said ho could not accept tho nomination on account of his business. While 1 thank this convention." he said. "I must nevertheless decline. Although this is a Democratic district. I should be more than willing to enter into the race if ho could." Mr. Billingsley was then chosen by accla mation, no other candidates being pre sented to the convention. Mr. Henry was again called out, and he briefly spoke m behalf of his party. Tho time had come, he said, to work all along the line, and to work earnestly. J. W. Lovett, Re publican candidate for Attorney-general, was also called out. He .spoke of the Dem ocratic platform, which he designated "a string of denunciations and vilifications from first to last." He also briefly traced tho history of the Republican party, and alluded to tho Democratic as the party of obstructions. After giving three cheers for Mr. Billingsley the convention ad iourned, the most of tho delegates leaving by the early afternoon trains. The selection of Mr. Billingsley is looked upon as a very fortunate one. His career has been one to which any citizen could point with pride. He was born in Bowling Green, Ky., on Sept. 18, 1832. and colebrated his fifty-eighth birthday, yesterday, by receiving congratu lations over his nomination, lie came to Indiana with his father's family in 1834, and located in Putnam county. After he became of age he went to Illinois, and lived in that State oight years. He presided ovor the first Republican convention that ever met in southern Illinois, in 1S56. He re turned to Indiana in 1661, and lived in Put num county until 18454; then he moved to Decatur township, this county, and lived on a farm there until 1872. In 18T2 he pur chased an interest in the Indiana Farmer, and moved to this city. He was connected with the Farmer about two years, after which ho served in the Legislature of 1872-3. He was engaged a few years in manufactur ing, and in 1870 started tho Drainage and Tile Journal. This has proved a successful en terprise and is leading authority in that field. Since 1S72 he has been more or less connected with farmers' movements, ad dressing farmers' institutes and other gatherings in which the agriculturists were interested. Ho has not been in active politics for mauy years past and did not seek the nomination, declining even to at .tend the convention at Anderson. He will accept, however, and says he will make a vigorous canvass of the district. Republican Vigor in the District. While the Seventh district islookedupon as a Democratic stronghold, there seems to have been a great change of heart among certain classes of citizens. Especially is this true in Madison county. CoL Milton S. Robinson, of Anderson, is one of the shrewdest and most active politicians of the county, and he has made a particular study of tho outlook. "I do not think I have ever known the prospects of the Re publican party so good as they are at the present time." he said to a Journal reporter yesterday. "The party has every advantage in its organization. It has hard workers and is not cut ud by factional differences. The Republicans are in excellent shape to meet tho Democracy, and they can do a great deal if they will only get out and work." "There has been a'great change in Ander son, alone, has thero notf" asked the re porter. A decided change," was the reply. "In the last two years we have had an increase of 1.500 people on account of tho discovery of natural gas, and CO per cent, of them aro Republicans. If you don't think tho Republicans have been gaining ground in the last six years, look at the figures. In 181 Hazelett, Republican, was elected by a majority of 10; in 18SG McClure, Republic an, polled a majority of 1U, and in 18SS he was re-elected with a majority of 1U3. This year we not only elected a Republican mayor (whoso majority was . 274), but we elected the full city ticket. The Democrats didn't even gat a councilman. And this in what encourages us. We feel we aro rapidly gaining ground, and if we can't wipe out the Democratic majority this year on tho congressional ticket. 1 know to a certainty wo can cut it down." Any one who would take the trouble to look over the ground in Madison county would find anything but an apathy among Republicans. Among the delegates to yes terday's convention not ouu was inclined to doubt the ability of the Republican party to make a successful canvass if everybody will but work, PHASES OP T1IE 'CAMPAIGN. Republicans of the Fourteenth Ward Hare an Enthusiastic Meeting. Tho Republicans of the Fourteenth ward opened the campaign last night with a rousing meeting in tho hall, corner of Blake add North streets. The Brotherhood Band was present, and, after playing several airs on the street, led the crowd up-stairs, where the proceedings took place. The best of feel ing prevailed from tho first, gathering tho force of enthusiasm before adjournment. County Committeeman Mowrer called the meeting to orderi and was elected chair man. Dr. George Havey was called out for a speech. He spoke a few minutes in a general way, touching on the salient feat ures of the canvass. Referring to the many colored voters in the hall, he compared them to tho Old Guard, who won glory and victory so often with Napoleon. Tho col ored voters are tho Old Guard of tho Re publican party, he said, upon whom it may depend in every trial of strength with tho Democratic party. The meeting, he re marked, was advertised as the opening gun of tho campaign, and with the splendid ehowing of numbers and feeling manifested, ho thought the gun was loaded to the muzzle. The speaker closed with a eulogy of the Repub lican party, extolling its spirit and policy and appealing for united ettort to achieve a victory. The speech was frequently in terrupted by aDplause. After tho Doctor came candidates Dunn, Browning, Noble, Stiles. Grubbs. Groff, Johnson and Church ill. Each spoke briefly and encouragingly. Mr. Wiltse, secretary of tho Republican county committee, was also called out, and added interest to the meeting. Among other leading Republicans present were: 'Squire Hawkins and Robert Rns feell, committeemen; John L. Evans, Will iam Davis, Washington Watkins, John Kinchin, Anderson Lewis, Charles Hart, Samuel Allen, E. Alberts, Clinton Lowe and a large number of others. Several Repub licans of other wards were present, among them being Charles Britton, Edward D uvall and A. 1L York. The likelihood of Green Smith being elected Attorney-general, in spito of its very remoto possibility, comes near to pro ducing a panio among the lawyers of In diana, regardless of what their individual politics maybe. If tho court reporter of the Jennings circuit has preserved any of Mr. Smith's bean-threshing eloquence as delivered before that court, ho can now find a market for it The caso of Wrapo vs. the Ohio & Mississippi Railway Company, recently appealed to the Supreme Court, and in which Mr. Smith gave tongue to a large amount of tho most villainous abuse of railway employes, contains a number of verbal gems. "1 don't intend," says Green Smith, in his closing argument in this case, "to writo myself down as a dogwood lawyer, nor as one who comes from another jurisdiction, parading before the jury the majesty of his own grace." IThink of the Green Smith variety of majesty and grace! "It is beneath the dignity of this case to talk about old coats that fire: it is beneath the dignity of this case to talk about black-jacks, and red lacks, and blue-jacks, and sassafras! Here is this hero railroad company with their strong arm, with their dictatorial power, with their pomp and their splendor, with gold regalia dazzling theeyesof tho court as they march through here, loaded down with books, and gold, and diamond jewelry I have no other people to live among but the people of Jennings county. lam going to be with you, gentlemen, until the green sod covers me over and my toes are turned to the roots of the grass. Did you ever see such a woeful case of men being done up by their own witnesses? Nobody but men that had tried to build a house on a sand-bank, expecting the house to stand, ever suffered such humiliation as that. Mr. Wells a witness will tell the truth. Of course it would not do to hit them too square a blow between the eyes, but finally, on cross-examination, he knocked them clear out a John L. Sullivan blow." There is plenty more of the same sort, but this is sufficient to show the style of Green Smith's argument. What an ornament he would prove to the Supremo Court! South Meridian street, always solid and conservative, is at last beginning to take an interest in the Republican county ticket and to talk about it. Tho legislative ticket comes in for a large share of favor able comment. Meridian street is inter ested in having tho county represented in the Legislature by men who will labor to bring about some much needed legislation in order that Indianapolis may have a chance in her race with other cities of the Union. The Commercial Club has ex pressed itself very forcibly on the subject. "We have," remarked a South Meridian street Republican, "the very kind of a ticket that the Commercial Club indicated, and I am pleased to know that nite a itical icaus. number of members of that non-pol body. Democrats as well as Renubl look with favor udou the Renul blican nominees, and aro quietly working for them." Other names on the ticket aro noted as representative of the best ele ments of the community, and tho whole ticket has the hearty support of the street. Under tho now system of voting Marion county elections are likely to bo somewhat burdensome to the tax-payer. The ma chinery is not only complex but expensive. Thero will be in this county 100 voting precincts, and at each precinct five officers, constituting the election board, consisting of one inspector, two judges and two clerks, each of whom will get for each day's service 2.50. In addition to these there will be two election sheriffs, who are to be paid 2.50 a day each. There will also be two United States supervisors in each precinct, but as the government, and not the county, will pay them, they will not be taken into account. There are to be at each precinct nine unpaid watchers, three from each political party, for sixteen men may bo in the room at the time the counting of the ballots begins. Tho seven men for each precinct who are to bo paid by the county will each count two days' work, making a total of $35. They will also have to be fed, and tho county will be called on to pay for at least two meals for each of them. The County Commissioners will contract to pay 40 cents a plate on these occasions, which will make an outlay for feed at each poll amounting to $5.00. The locations for tho polling-places are to be rented, and will cost on an average $5each, the booths at each poll costing about 15, making 20 in all. This will make a total for the 100 polling-places of $7,909. But this is not all the expense. Print in ct the tickets will cost the county about 250; dia grams of the voting precincts, 6275, and ad vertising the election and posting the no tices, at least $100 more, making a total of $3,024. Prediction is made that, with this much expense in sight, the full amount of bills that will be presented to tho County Commissioners for payment for the Novem ber election will not fall short of $10,000, as there are numerous incidentals, not to speak of the publication of the ticket and descriptions of the precinct boundaries. There was a mad Democrat in the. city yesterday, and he unbosomed himself in the hearing of several well satisfied Republic ans concerning the serene confidence of his party. "Why, the d d fools are so sure of carrying the State," said ho, "that you can't beat into their heads anything in the way of a warning. They prattle about 10,000 and 15,000 majority, as if they lived south of the Mason-Dixon lines where ev erything is a 'cinch' for tho Democrats. I tried to tell a lot of them to-day that the Republicans have a nasty habit of finishing in such a lively manner that the Democrats find themselves a little short of enough votes, but they laughed at me, and said 1 talked like a Jonah. They think they have a walk-away, but you mark my words, about Nov.lthoy willtind out that the Republicans are hustling them so hard their hair will be on end. I tell you, when it comes to brains and good com mon political sense our leaders are lackiug, t?id that's just where we lose." This Dem ocratic explosion emiuated, not from a dis appointed candidato for a nomination, but from a member of the party in good stand ing, who was simply mad at the sure-thing talk of his fellow-Democrats. Political Notes. Secretary of State Griffin returned yes terday from the northwest part of the State. Iu,tb;i t quarter he says the conditions promising Republican success were never more favorable. Ex-Mayor John L. McMaster will address the Republicansof theTwentieth ward, this evening, at the corner of Fletcher avenue and Noble street, on the subject of the new election law. Marshal A. Moore, of Greencastle. was in the city a short time yesterday. He reports a good feeling among the Republicansof Putnam county, and general satisfaction over what the State convention did last week. Mr. Michener apprehends that it will be somewhat difficult to get speakers of na tional reputation from abroad for the In diana campaign, for the reason that the most of them are in Congress, when Con gress adjourns they will return to their districts to look after their own interests. Granvillo S. Wright has taken, charge of the work of assigning speakers for the Re publican State central committee. Mr. Wright did that work very acceptably in the canvass of 18S8. A very heavy corre spondence in regard to speakers is now go ing on, and the speech-making part of the campaign will open in full force about Oct.L A Democrat from southern Indiana, who was in the city yesterday, remarked that he was feeling particularly blue. "I never before saw such apathy in the heavy Dem ocratic counties," he remarked. "They don't seem to care whether the grand old Democratic party wins or not. I haven't seen our people so careless about results since 1872, when we run Greeley for the presidency." BARRETT LAW CRUDELY DBAWN. Some Conf rj8lon Arises Under It, tmtlt Carries with It No Blanket Jlortgage. There has been considerable misunder standingin regard to the provisions of the Barrett law, and many property-holders have felt no little anxiety as to its practical working. "The principal objection to tho law," said City Attorney Taylor to the Journal reporter who called upon him yes terday with a number of interrogatories,, "is that it is crudely drawn and not clear in its use of terms. Besides this, it is com plex. It requires a semi-annual payment of interest, both on the bonds issued by tho city and by the property-holder, as the as sessment appears against him on the tax duplicate. Much confusion, however, has arisen because tho sharp distinction is not made between the contract that the bond holder makes with the city and tho con tract that the property-holder makes with the contractor. The bonds that are issued may be dated at any time and payable any time. The assessment against the proper ty, on the other hand, must be paid by tho property-holder before the third Monday - in April and the first Monday in November of each year. When the property-holder goes to the county treasurer's offico and pays his assessment a receipt is given him, and he is credited therewith upon the tax duplicate. When he has paid all his assessments, the dupli cate will show such payments, andhis prop erty is entirely released." , "But." interposed tho reporter, "suppose his neighbors have not paid, or the city has not paid tho bonds!" "It is no concern of his," was the reply, "what has become of the bonds, who holds them, or whether they have been paid or hot. His property is entirely released when he has paid his assessments. It is the City s business, and not his, to see that the bonjs are paid. There is no such thing as a lieu or cloud of any kind upon his property. In this city we have made this point espe cially clear by issuing a separate bond to cover each property-holder's assessment. Furthermore, we issue the bond with nine teen coupons, each alternate coupon being for interest, and the others being for interest and 10 per cent, of tbo principal. These bonds are issued to the contractor. He takes them, and sells or keeps them, as he chooses. Each six months he clips a coupon, takes it to the county treasurers office, where it is paid out of money that has been paid, as stated, by property-holders." ''Suppose the property-holder docs not pay!" "Then the contractor or holder of the bond immediately brings suit thereon and forecloses the bond, like in the case of a mortgage. This proceeding does not affect any other property-holder than the one who is delinquent." "What as to the right of a property holder to pay off all his installments at one time!" "On that point the law is not as olear as it should he, but to save all question the city has stipulated in the bond that the same may be paid at any time by paying the principal and the first installment of interest thereafter falling due thus cut ting off', after paying tho first year, nine years of interest, if paid tho second year eight years of interest, and so on." "How are persons to proceed who desire the benfitof the law!" "They should file an acceptance of its pro visions with the city clerk before the final estimate for the work has been approved, otherwise they will have to pay for the en tire improvement at once. This occurs, of course, after the improvement has been completed. The city clerk has a printed record for the property-holders to sign, and they may leave their signatures at any timo before the work is completed. AlLthis fear of a blanket mortgage being upon all property-holders interested in an improve ment, should any fail to pay, arises from tho fact that in some cities they have issued ten or more bonds covering tho entire im provement, so that each bondis secured by the assessment upon all the property upon the street. No such practice prevails in Indianapolis." WAITING THE COMPANY'S PLEASURE. Under the New School-Book Law There Need Be No Hurry in Filling Requisitions. The beauties of the school-book law en acted by the late Democratic Legislature are once again illustrated by tho delay in providing books for the children in various parts of the State, a delay which the law not only tolerates, but encourages. This statute, of which the Democratic party is so proud, compels the State superintendent to at oncissue requisitions for books upon application, but it does not compel the pub lishers to furnish them at once, or even within a reasonable time. It gives the In diana School-books Company ninety days to supply the book, and it looks as if that corporation was going to take the limit of time in many localities. In con sequence of this many schools aro suffering, and there are complaints from a number of quarters. The new county superintendents do not come into office until Aug. 1 each year, and the retir ing officials do not care to make applica tion for books. Hence it is left for the new superintendents to do. Thus it is that some of tho requisitions are not filled un til November.' two months after the school year has begun. Tbo law gives the company that latitude and the com pany avails itself of the three months. Take South Bend, for instance. The Indi ana School-book Company sent just one hundred elementary geographies, when the requisition called for hundreds more. The same is true of other text-books wanted in that locality. Against the Lottery Agents. The fcder&l authorities in this State are prepared, under the new law, to make things warm for lottery agents. The new law forbids the carrying in tho mails or tho delivery of any letter, postal card or circu lar concerning any lottery, or any list of drawings of the same, or any lottery ticket, or any check, draft, bill, money or postal note or money order to the purchaser of any lottery ticket. Tho carrying of any news paper, circular, pamphlet or publication of any kind containing any advertisement of any lottery or list of lottery prizes la also forbidden. Tho operations of this law will rotiro from the streets of Indianapolis a dozen or more well-dressed persons who bavo been doing a great business peddling lottery tickets. Dynamite Ammunition.
